I have always said that luxury is in the details. You want to start your home off with clean and pretty classic pieces to set a beautiful stage. Then you want to layer on delicate and beautiful touches. You can keep the basics pretty affordable, too. I've always been a fan of the Darling Detail blog and her new living room makeover is a beautiful mix of affordable basics that looks clean and inviting.
I have always had a secret little crush on Long Island City. My first boyfriend in NYC had a beautiful apartment there and I loved being in that neighborhood. Objects assembled of LIC has a chic little coffee table style. . .I adore the details.
Add beautiful details to your closet. Perhaps floral wallpaper or a beautiful grey lounger. . .Check out this comparison on Style at Home.
